Should I Reupholster This Bed?

Should I Reupholster This Bed?

Q: I have a bed that's similar to the one attached and I'm considering (with no previous upholstery experience!) upholstering it myself. The frame is in good shape but I'm so tired of it! I'd like to end up with something like Crate & Barrel's Colette bed. Am I crazy to think that with a little elbow grease, a saw and a good staple gun this is doable?
